Greening Supply-Chain Management APOLOGIES FOR CROSS-POSTINGS
Dear Colleagues,

'Greener Management International' Issue 35 is a special theme issue:

Edited by Joseph Sarkis, Clark University, USA

The way that organisations manage environmental policies and practices throughout their supply chains is under-researched and for all but the most proactive businesses, green supply-chain management remains in its infancy. This is not surprising. Control of the supply chain is a difficult matter with many factors to weigh up. However, with benefits such as improved corporate image; reduced liability; improved business continuity; and even reduced direct operational costs now becoming clearer, ŒGreener Management International¹ has decided to devote a theme issue to make sense of current developments.

Every organisation is a member of some supply chain or network. Within the environmental management arena, many topical areas are influenced by or influence the supply chain: Life-cycle analysis; product stewardship and takeback; industrial ecology; and design for environment, all intertwine with the way organisations manage their supply chains. The need for more research to assess what works, what doesn¹t work and how to help improve the greening of the supply chain through new tools and theoretical advances, begins here.
